What’s this church about?

Mount Dora First United Methodist Church aspires to be a passionate community of believers that grows the faith of individuals, worships with purpose, and loves extravagantly. Established more than 140 years ago, our church has been around for as long as there’s been a Mount Dora. We love Jesus, and we love showing that love to everyone we meet. Read more »

Which service has the shortest/easiest sermon?

Our minister teaches the same sermon at all three services. Though we sometimes have sermon series spanning several weeks, each sermon can stand on its own, so you won’t be lost if you don’t come every Sunday. We also livestream our Contemporary and Late Traditional services each week and archive those videos so you always have the opportunity to catch up. Check out our archives »

Which services have child care options?

The Contemporary and Late services have child care options with spiritual learning tailored to each age group. In fact, we have a wide variety of events, classes, and enrichment for every child, from toddlers to teens. Footprints Ministries introduces God’s story to families with children from birth to elementary school, while Barefoot Ministries strengthens the faith of teens and young adults.

What else is going on throughout the week?

More than you think. Our most popular weekday event is our Wonderful Wednesdays, with dinner and activities for children, youth and adults. On top of that, we regularly host Bible studies, classes, meetings, clubs, and outings. We keep each of these gatherings well-curated on our events calendar, so be sure to check it often!
